I am not sure if this is the correct area to post. I am looking for a good close up case. Any suggestion on a manufacturer or vendor. I have search on here and the web. No luck. Thanks

It depends on the props!

In the early '50s, while in the Navy, I carried my 30 minute club act, in a leather shaving kit, about cigar box size!

70 years later, I'm using a "fat" attache case (13" x 20" x 8") for my 45 minute school assembly program and club dates.

In both situations, the props are basically generic. Silks, rope, golf balls, cards (for fancy shuffles) egg bag, spot card, boomerang sticks, brakawa fan, 3 linking rings, 5 silver dollars and a "tin" can for a coin pail.

Most of the props in the school show or club act, can be used for strolling, or "close up".

Go visit a good thrift store. You can find all sorts of small cases (cheap!)

A case like this is very handy. Lots of compartments to keep things in order and space at the bottom for extras

I currently use this one:

Prior to that, I used this one:

They have both served me well.

Is it for storage or taking to gigs?
I have a small box like this for travel

I can carry extra items in it; professors nightmare, a couple of extra decks of cards, a velvet cord for ring and string, a nest of wallets, and Chop cup
It is also small enough that I can carry it and set it down. It does not take up an enormous space on a table. It is solid enough that I can use it as a raised surface which I can place my cards on, keeping them off the table grime and it also works as a mini stage for the chop cup. If it’s walk around and no tables, I leave it in the glove compartment of my car and I am able to go switch out what I need during a break. Since everything is pocket sized, I’m able switch out and replace items as needed and not be over stuffed.

It depends on what you're looking for.

For strolling I use this:

For my full close up show I use a doctor's bag that I found on Amazon by searching "doctor's bag for men"
